British Museum and then some

Library ceiling

I went to London today to see my friend Sara before she goes back to Denmark. We went to the British Museum which was gorgeous as usual - one of my favourite bits there is this ceiling which is in the library at the centre of the museum.

The museum also has such incredible artifacts as the Parthenon Frieze (Yeah, yeah, yeah it should be in Greece, I know. But at the moment it's here in England, so suck it!) and the Rosetta Stone.

We also just walked around in London - between Regent's Park and the British Museum. Here are some pictures.

And here are pictures from the British Museum. They have a glorious collection of Islamic art, I especially love the ceramics: pictures of those here.
